UPDATED: MAR 1, 2015 Bottle from Saveur-Biere.com - Color: clear amber beer with medium carbonation and medium heavy white foam. Smell: nice domination of grass and resin notes. Caramel presence. Really nice bouquet on nose. Taste: nice density on mouth with caramel and high hoppy taste. Notes of high aromatic hops and with small resin taste. Aftertaste: nice and high sweet bitterness. Good beer and really nice but maybe too bitterness for a pale ale.
On tap @ Stone Brewery, Escondido - CA. Color: clear blond beer with small carbonation and small white foam. Smell: very well balanced between malt and hops, grassy notes and floral finish. Very fresh. Taste: nice malt and hoppy well balance taste. Very good beer. Easy drinkable. Maybe the best pale ale I tasted. Very well balance. Aftertaste: hoppy finish.

Bottle. Dark amber. Spiced malt aroma. The taste adds pine and caramel. Big and rich for a pale ale. Good stuff. Typical stone.
